Default Ebay Auction End Times

Is there a best time to end auctions of a large group of cards (think set break)? I'm guessing evening would be best. Are there certain nights that are better than others? Are weekend nights good or bad?

I'm about to list roughly 100 cards and want to maximize potential exposure and have the best potential for activity near the end of the auction.

Thoughts?

I would NOT recommend ending anything on a Friday or Saturday evening....lately I have been using Tuesdays, some strong nights, some not so strong. Having the listings end between 9-10 PM EST seems to be my best times, although I spread out the ending times from 8.30 to 10.30 on the evening they are ending on.

Do you use a software tool to help you spread out the listings? List them one by one? If you schedule the start of the auction, you can only do so in 15 minute increments, right? I've seen some that are spread out with 1-3 minutes in between each card. Any advice?

You can specify a start time in 1 minute increments. I usually space them out at least 2-3 minutes in case I have buyers that want to purchase multiples to save on shipping. It gives them time to win an auction, then check my other listings and bid, if they choose.

I use sixbit....it takes approx. half an hour to 45 min to upload to ebay 500 items. So, due to the program uploading them to ebay, it provides about a 4-5 second increment between each listing. I do list in groups of less than 500 just to provide more time in between groups that I am listing...IE. I might list 150 then wait 10 minutes once those upload and then upload another group of 150-200 items.

If I remember correctly, scheduling the start of a listing through ebay incurs some sort of additional fee.
